The promenade along the waterfront in Hong Kong, China, is a popular gathering spot for people of all ages. Vendors with foods and artifacts string booths for most of its length. To maintain order and public safety, plenty of police stroll among the visitors and locals, silently watchful of the scene.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    I find police anywhere in the world interesting, and they all have the same look. And swagger.

    nicely done phil, I really like the background lines, the way their shirts and vests stand out and their expressive faces!

  • Thanks Georgie for taking a peek at these two. I also liked the bit of black behind the fellow. On the right and the lined wall in contrast.
